WHY CHOOSE There are lots of institutions that offer top quality degrees. But how many of them offer a truly unique experience, giving you that little bit extra for your money? Degree and university-level courses are a big investment. We want to give you a little bit extra to help you stand out from the crowd once you’ve finished.


US?

Our campuses are perfectly set-up for studying. We have lots of great facilities and resources for you to use. In Eastbourne we have a sports park with outdoor 3G all-weather pitches and an indoor sports hall with tennis courts. We have eight music studios kitted out with industry standard recording and mixing equipment. We also have workshops and construction areas, fitted with industry standard machinery and tools. In Lewes we have dedicated art studios that allow you to work in your own space and take advantage of our well stocked art supplies.

Our campuses are easy to get to and have great transport links. Our Eastbourne campus is a short walk from Hampden Park train station and has a regular bus service from Hampden Park and from Eastbourne town centre. Our Lewes campus sits next door to Lewes train station and is a short walk from the town centre.

You can study a wide range of subjects. All of which are perfectly linked to their industry and feed directly into the job market.

Many of our tutors are fully-qualified with experience in their field.

Our class sizes are small enough to make you feel like you belong here.

That means they understand how people learn and can personalise your learning experience to help you understand the subject matter in a way that is best for you.

We’ll make you feel a part of something – like a small university family. What’s more, our tutors will always be available to talk to you during and after lectures and give you all the one-to-one time you need.

The other great thing about our smaller class sizes is that our facilities and resources are more readily available.... If you need to book the photography studio for a threehour shoot, or you want to record your new music album, then you can. With ease.

LEWES OPENS ITS DOORS TO 60,000 SPECTATORS ON ITS BUSIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR, BONFIRE NIGHT. Lewes Bonfire Celebrations are considered to be one of the best in England. They attract bonfire societies and dozens of marching bands, finishing with a Firework display and bonfire.

…and when you realise that you get all of that and you save almost a third in tuition fees, then you really are on to a winner by studying with us!

Eastbourne and Lewes are widely becoming known as very attractive places to study. Eastbourne is known as the Sunshine Coast because it regularly tops the charts as the UK town with the most sunshine hours in any given year. The new shopping centre has been expanded and features more high-street brands, restaurants, and a cinema.

Lewes is steeped in history with its medieval castle, narrow streets, and boutique shops. It is also home to one of oldest breweries in Sussex, Harvey’s Brewery. Occasionally, Harvey’s horse drawn cart still makes its way through the town.

EASTBOURNE HAS FEATURED IN: Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Harry Potter, James Bond, Brighton Rock, Made in Dagenham, Pearl Harbour, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Poirot, Little Britain, Foyle’s War, Miss Marple, Top Gear, and That Mitchell and Webb Look... the list goes on!

EASTBOURNE IS ONE OF THE TOP 10 HAPPIEST TOWNS IN THE UK

|8

Eastbourne is a diverse town, sandwiched between the South Downs and the seaside. It’s a town with a thriving events calendar and brilliant location, which creates the perfect blend of business, education, tourism, and leisure.

WELCOME SUNSHIN


|9 Eastbourne is dubbed the Sunshine Coast, a name given because it regularly tops the charts as the UK town with the most sunshine hours in any given year. And given that sunshine equates to Vitamin D – the happy hormone – there is no better place to learn in the UK. And while we can’t guarantee high temperatures and yearround sunshine, Eastbourne has plenty more to offer. Eastbourne offers a relaxed way of living, with the cities of Brighton and London easily accessible by train and in close proximity. Think of Eastbourne and

most people will say it’s like 1950s Brighton, similar in looks to its neighbour with its pier and picture-perfect seafront lined with hotels, but with a less frenetic pace. It’s the reason film director Rowan Joffe chose Eastbourne as the location for his remake of the iconic 1948 film, Brighton Rock, in 2010. For that reason alone, Eastbourne most definitely rocks!

2019 has been somewhat of a revival for the town. The Arndale Centre has been renamed to The Beacon and is the town’s main place to shop. A host of popular high street stores, restaurants, and a new cinema has been added to the offering.

We understand that the time you spend outside the classroom is also important to you! Student life isn’t just about life in the classroom. It’s about making new friends, exploring the local area and gaining life skills.

E TO THE NE COAST!


Eastbourne is renowned for its plethora of bars and restaurants. The extensive list includes gastropubs, modern bistros, Victorian tearooms, and good old fashioned country pubs. HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE FOODY SPOTS:

PERFECT PLACE FOR A PINT:

FANCY A BURGER? Burger bars seem to be all the rage right now and when they’re as good as the ones we have in Eastbourne, then they’re probably here to stay. Half Man Half Burger, 7Bone Burger Co., Harleywood Diner, and Old Dave’s Gourmet Burger Co. serve up some mouth-watering creations – everything from beef burgers to vegan burgers.

THE CORNFIELD GARAGE The town’s most popular branch of JD Wetherspoon. It has a great choice of local brewers and suppliers and regularly holds cider and gin festivals.

FLAMENCO TAPAS This has to be our favourite Spanish themed restaurant in Eastbourne. They serve over 60 dishes, including a great vegetarian range. The ingredients are sourced from Spain and the restaurant has a typical Spanish feel. There are also 20 Spanish wines to accompany your meal.

| 10

FUSCIARDI’S ICE CREAM The seaside and ice cream go hand in hand and Fusciardi’s is one of the most popular ice cream parlours in the town. ‘A taste of Italy in Eastbourne’.

DID YOU KNOW?

Eastbourne is also the birthplace of the Banoffee Pie. The delicious dessert was born right out of The Hungry Monk in the Wealdon district of Eastbourne. (There’s a pub quiz question right there!)

THE LAMB INN Thought to be one of the oldest pubs in the country! It sits proudly in the Old Town and has done since about 1180. It serves fine Sussex ales and could well be haunted. JOIN THE ALE TRAIL: Bibendum, The Dolphin, The Dewdrop, and The Eagle form a fantastic quartet of pubs. Locals refer to them as the south street shuffle. Quite a popular route for a night out, starting at Bibendum and working your way along South Street until you reach the Eagle.

FANCY SOMETHING A LITTLE FRUITIER? EASTBOURNE COCKTAIL CLUB ECC has been a very popular hangout since opening in 2015. Its extensive range of craft beers, gins, and over 100 different cocktails, coupled with its vivid artwork and rock 'n' roll memorabilia, make a winning formula.


EASTBOURNE ATTRACTS MORE THAN FIVE MILLION VISITORS EACH YEAR AND HERE’S WHY:

MAGNIFICENT MOTORS Eastbourne’s biggest and best motor show happens each year over the first May bank holiday weekend. The motoring spectacular features more than 900 vintage and classic cars, motorbikes, buses, and is a weekend packed with live music and entertainment. EASTBOURNE THEATRES Musical performances, live shows, and standup comedy are also very good in Eastbourne. The Congress Theatre reopened in March 2019 after an extensive refurbishment as part of the £54 million Devonshire Park Project. The London Philharmonic Orchestra performed as the venues premiere concert. Touring comics such as Michael McIntyre and Alan Carr often test out their new material in Eastbourne, and West End shows often roll into town throughout the year.

NATURE VALLEY INTERNATIONAL TENNIS TOURNAMENT Each June, some of the world’s best tennis players visit the Sunshine Coast for the Nature Valley International. Some of the biggest names in women’s and men’s tennis have graced the Devonshire Park Lawn Tennis courts including Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber, Stan Wawrinka, Andy Murray, and Eastbourne’s Johanna Konta.

BEACH LIFE FESTIVAL If you’re looking for something a little more extreme then look no further. Beach Life is one of the biggest FREE extreme sports festivals in the UK! Taking place mid-july, the event attracts skaters, BMXers, windsurfers, and SUP enthusiasts to the coast.

AIRBOURNE Perhaps Eastbourne’s biggest and most popular event of the year. In mid-August huge crowds line the seafront to watch the two mile flying display. The four-day event features the very best in military and civilian aviation display teams and regularly includes the RAF Typhoon, Chinook, The Blades, Wingwalkers and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. BEER & CIDER BY THE SEA The end of May bank holiday beer festival well and truly kicks off the summer. It features over 100 real ales, ciders, and perries, and has great entertainment from live bands on the festival stage throughout the weekend.

The Sussex town of Lewes is steeped in history. It is a picturesque and quintessential English town with the white chalk cliffs of the South Downs as the perfect backdrop.

The River Ouse, which runs directly through the town, and the 1,000-year-old Lewes Castle are two dominating features of Lewes. As you venture into the town centre you are welcomed by narrow alleyways, crooked buildings, and a plethora of shops, cafes, and restaurants. From mainstream brands to independent names, Lewes is a truly artisan town with an old fashioned charm.

The Barbican House is home to the Museum of Sussex Archaeology and houses local collections from the Stone Age to medieval times. Anne of Cleves was a resident of Lewes and her former house gives an insight into how Tudors and Elizabethans lived, worked, and relaxed at home. Political activist, philosopher, and Founding Father of the United States, Thomas Paine, was also

SOMETH HISTORI


to create Harvey’s beers. On some days the Harvey’s Brewery horse drawn cart still frequents the cobbled roads of the town!

Harvey’s Brewery moved into the town in 1790 and have lived here ever since. Just as John Harvey did, his descendants use a blend of four local hops, water filtered through the South Downs for over 30 years, and a unique 60-year-old yeast strain,

History tells us that Lewes has always been independent and liked to do things a little differently. Its wide range of independent and boutique shops, salons, cafés, bars, and restaurants is the modern day example of that. But that’s what makes Lewes so great!

Fashion boutique Twinkle Twinkle offers luxurious modern classics for style lovers not slaves to fast fashion. The Needlemakers, a former needle and candle factory, houses lots of craft shops, perfect for finding unique accessories and homeware. The café also serves delicious cake.

LEWES IS A TRULY ARTISAN TOWN WITH AN OLD FASHIONED CHARM.

a former resident, having lived above the 15th century Bull House, which was a tobacco shop at the time.

While we’re on the subject of food, Lewes has lots of fantastic places to eat. There are well established restaurants such as Bill’s, which began as a greengrocers in the town, and the newer, vibrant Fuego Lounge, but we also love some of the smaller, lesser known places:

THE LEWES ARMS An architectural gem steeped in character and tradition. Locals say that this is the best pub in Lewes, and we find it hard to disagree. This historic pub, which is over 200-years-old, serves up delicious food, well-kept ales, and great entertainment.

PELHAM ARMS

If you’re a fan of Thai then you’ll love Erawan. It’s an intimate Thai diner that serves up authentic, spicy dishes that are great value. It’s just a couple of minutes from campus, it’s Bring Your Own, and the Penang curry is delicious.

This is quite a unique pub with its own smokehouse! The Pelham Arms has been curing meats for a number of years and in 2016 built their own smokehouse on-site and now serve a whole range of smoked treats. They also offer delicious burgers with hand-ground meats and house-made sauces.

CACCIA & TAILS

JOHN HARVEY TAVERN

ERAWAN

An amazing pasta and focaccia bar offering homemade pasta, sauces, and breads. The Focaccia is Genovese, a regional style of Focaccia which is best eaten upside down to allow the salt to hit your tongue. The mac’n’cheese fries with Marmite mayo are a must.

THE BUS CLUB PIZZA HOUSE We love pizza. Even if we didn’t, I’m sure that the wood-fired pizzas served here would convert us in no time! They offer lots of great toppings and even do gluten free and vegan pizzas.

THE SWAN INN If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, then look no further than the Swan’s Sunday roast. Big plates with all the trimmings and a great veggie roast available as well.

| 14

Having its own brewery, you’d expect there to be quite a few places you could sample the county’s finest ales – you’re not wrong:

A rustic pub in the heart of the town that sits opposite Harvey’s Brewery and next to the River Ouse. Wine Wednesdays and Burger Thursdays are our favourite times to visit.

HARVEY’S BREWERY There aren’t many towns in the south east where you can tour a brewery and taste the unique and distinct flavours of the county’s finest ales. “We wunt be druv” a Sussex dialect phrase that means “we will not be driven” and has been used in the county for hundreds of years and denotes the independence, spirit, and pride of the brewers.


It's not all ale and beer though: CAFÉ DU JARDIN By day - a lovely French café / bistro serving rustic French food. But on a Friday and Saturday night, the Wine Cellar is one of our favourite places to hang out. Lots of great cocktails, an extensive wine list, and entertainment on most nights. A quirky and cosy setting; and relatively still unknown – until now!

THE DEPOT The Depot is a bit of an all-rounder. Great for food, a fantastic selection of beers, wines, and spirits, a brilliant place to meet with friends, and it’s a cinema!

And if that wasn’t enough, Lewes knows how to throw a good party. There are lots of events happening throughout the year that you can experience: LOVE SUPREME FESTIVAL A three-day jazz festival held during the first weekend in July. Set in the stunning surroundings of Glynde Place, the festival has been running since 2013.

GLYNDEBOURNE FESTIVAL OPERA At the opposite end of the celebrations spectrum is the Glyndebourne Festival Opera. Glyndebourne house is a 1,200 seater venue and has held the festival since 1934, attracting people from all over the world.

LEWES BONFIRE Bonfire night in Lewes is huge! The celebrations not only mark the foiled gunpowder plot of 1605 but also commemorates the memory of the 17 Protestant martyrs burnt at the stake for their faith.

relevant. It’s also an amazing way to promote yourself and connect with other specialists; to network.

i.e developing your CV, identifying potential employers and preparing for interview pitches.

You could start your career in Film & TV, Motion Graphics, Videography, Illustration, Web Design and Development, or in 3D Modelling.

The last ‘sprint’ of your three year investment is the Final Major Project. You can do ANYTHING relevant to Digital Media and/ or Design. You write the brief, do the research, experiment with the processes, refine the idea and then produce the final piece - that final piece of work represents you at the end-of-year show. Make it a good one. Make yourself proud.

EMPLOYMENT & PROGRESSION:

During the year you will explore ways in which you can develop yourself as a professional.

Once you have completed the course you may look for employment in a range of media-related roles.

In the industry, especially in design, you will be expected to motivate yourself, keep abreast with design trends and work in a way which appreciates technical developments. Setting personal challenges throughout your career is essential to staying current and

This course is great because it perfectly fits with my career ambitions. It has been a brilliant introduction to coaching and teaching and its practical nature is a great way to learn. The teaching staff are amazing and really put in so much effort to help you achieve.

DEVELOP EXPERTISE IN

Yvette Stainsby Having completed the PGCE myself, and with seven years of teaching experience across a variety of levels, I appreciate the demands of managing a full time job alongside studying. The sessions are tailored to suit these needs of the students with engaging and practical sessions. Students studying with us have found the sessions to be relevant to their practice with tools they can use on a daily basis. Getting to see the students grow in confidence and in turn develop their skill set over the two years is one of the reason I love my job. My background in Psychology has supported many teachers to develop their understanding of psychological nature of teaching as well as ensuring they are supported and nurtured throughout the course. Developing the academic nature of teachers has also encouraged fantastic conversations about teaching and learning in our society today. I love hearing different opinions and viewpoints and the compassionate nature of the group helps develop each other’s teaching practice.

Studying my Cert Ed has been an extremely challenging but rewarding experience. It is an amazing opportunity to be able to study, whilst gaining experience at the same time. The quality of support and teaching has been exceptional and I would highly recommend this course.

OUR COVER HAS BEEN DESIGNED BY ONE OF OUR GRADUATES

Since graduating in 2013, I have worked for many top brands including performing a live illustration for Naked Grouse, and designing for Jim Beam Bourbon and Hilton Hotels. I really enjoyed designing this front cover and to give something back to University Centre Hastings!


how to promote myself, get contacts, to pitch for projects, and how to invoice my work. All of this helped me to set up my own business, and work with top brands. I now work with Atom Group who create award winning drinks and spirits that you will see on supermarket shelves, like Bathtub Gin!

I loved my time studying here. I used the glass, metal, ceramic, and photography studios, all of which can all be applied to Illustration. I fell in love with lettering and typography, which became the focus of this cover. However the illustration course also taught me about professional practice, workplace skills,
